If you missed Wellesley’s impressive food waste event in December, here is another one.
On Sunday, April 10 at 4 p.m. First Parish in Needham, 23 Dedham Ave., Needham, will host a free showing of the award-winning 75-minute documentary about food waste, “Just Eat It,” inspired by the book American Wasteland, by Wellesley High graduate Jonathan Bloom.
The movie has been called “equal parts education and delicious entertainment” and reflects the increasing concern that as much as 40% of the food grown in the U.S. is never eaten, although millions of Americans are food insecure.
After the film, get a quick update of some local initiatives to curb food waste, and come to Parish Hall for light refreshments and discussion. The film is cosponsored by the Green Needham Collaborative.
